History of The Gandy House, Humboldt, NE: "The Gandy House" began as a wooden store front around Humboldt square and in 1889 was moved to it's current site. Dr George and Clementine (Rousek) Gandy built on to the house after they married in 1910.  Dr Gandy was born in Humboldt in 1880 and graduated from Humboldt Public Schools. After leaving to obtain his medical degree, he returned to Humboldt in 1904 and set up his medical practice in the Park Hotel on the Square.  His father, Dr James L Gandy, was the first physician to locate in Humboldt in 1869.  His mother, Mary E (Otto)Gandy ran a drug store.
The native rock that surrounds the property and featured on the front porch, sun room and upper deck, were gathered from farm fields surrounding Humboldt.  It was told that Dr Gandy paid local persons fifty cents a day to gather these rocks and bring them to his property.  The working wood fireplace in the living room also features the native rock.
Part of the original house was one of the first wooden buildings around the City square.  It was relocated to its present location when brick buildings were built.
The original antique lighting fixtures and dark woodwork are featured throughout the house.
The Stalder Family purchased the home from the Estate of Clementine Gandy in 1972.  Duaine and Sandy (Schacht) Stalder, innkeepers, purchased the home from the Estate of Harry Stalder in 2008 to become the "Stalder's B & B - "The Gandy House" with their motto being "It's like staying at Grandpa and Grandma's house"
